HW ready console for sale - Buckinghamshire, UK

PostFri Jul 23, 2021 1:04 pm

I'm soon to get delivery of a new console, so my old one is available. £400 - buyer collects from Buckinghamshire.

I bought it from this forum about 15 years ago - the previous owner had converted it to midi. It would be ideal either as a basic console as is or as the basis for a further project. The important bits work fine (see below).

It's based on a Livingston electronic organ console - 2 manual and pedal. Manuals - 5 octave C - C (61 keys). Pedals - 2.5 octave C - F (30 pedals), concave and radiating. NB - top F is currently out of action, and there's a bit of bodging in the electronic connection on the pedal board which doesn't affect the operation.

The swell pedal has been midified, but doesn't work. The stop tabs (25) are also midified, but the midi signal is quite noisy - I tend to use other means to set and change registration.

The midi out is provided by a single standard midi cable.

The bench and case are solid wood and veneer and heavy - a sturdy van and a second pair of hands would be useful to pick up. There is a lid to the case. There is also pedalboard lighting. Photos are below. All of my contrebombarde recordings (https://www.contrebombarde.com/concerthall/home/popup_playlist_search/srw647) have been created using this console.

(Computer, monitor, audio setup, headphones not for sale. Nor is the rather nice Roland electronic harpsichord next door!)

You wrote:

Manuals - 5 octave C - C (56 keys).
Pedals - 2.5 octave C - F (28 pedals)

I believe that should be:

Manuals - 5 octave C - C (61 keys).
Pedals - 2.5 octave C - F (32 pedals)

Don't sell yourself short. This might make a difference to a potential buyer.

Good luck, and be sure to tell us about your new console.

Not to nitpick, but C-F is only 30 notes :)

As my editor spouse would say, "Everyone needs an editor." Thanks for the correction, Steven.

Now that I've counted properly (I've got a maths degree and have been working with maths professionally for the last 25 years :oops: ) I think the advert is right. Would anyone like to buy it?!
